Albany convenience store owner fights back

Albany--  There was gunfire in northwest Albany as a convenience store owner fought off an armed robber.

A little after seven o'clock Wednesday night, a man entered the Mini-Mart at 2422 Stuart Avenue, showed a gun and demanded money. That's when store owner Mike Patel pulled out his own gun and fired one shot at the would-be robber.

It scared the crook away. Police found two suspects nearby. They quickly released one but took the other in for questioning. They also released him Wednesday night because of a lack of evidence.

If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
